I'd love to track down episodes of "The Stoned Ranger and Toronto". These were short very humerous one or two minute skits that I believe were broadcast on various rock stations in the 60's or early 70's. Can anyone help me?

I think you are thinking of the Lone Ranger & Tonto schtick offered by Bill Cosby....

Lone Ranger: Hey Tonto... ya got any money?
I'll let you peek uder my mask.
Tonto: Why don't you use one of your silver bullets?

also:

Lone Ranger: Tonto, I want you to go into town and get the information.

Tonto: and get beat up again? You go to ....ll!

That was Bill Cosby.

Actually, I have a cassette tape with quite a few of the bits of the Stoned Ranger ("O-hi-o river!!! Oy Vey!!) and his faithful Indian companion Toronto, who rode his faithful horse, International Scout. I recorded them daily for a couple of weeks as they were broadcast on one of our local am stations. I thought they were hilarious! I'll try to find the cassette in the archives... stay tuned.

Around 1980, New York's WPLJ, 95.5 FM, aired a Stoned Ranger remake series with on air personalities. The Stoned Ranger's companion was "Condo". "Dilbert" was his trusty steed. And "Billy the Yid" was his nemesis.
I had the sequential recordings of when they would play them all at once.
But of course, they were lost over the years.
However, me and my best pal Paolo, still quote lines from them to this day.
I wish I could find the original airings from back then.

I remember this show well. Back in 72 I recorded 15 episodes onto cassette with an old low quality hand held tape recorder. Then a few years ago I pulled it out and converted them to wma files. The sound quality isn't great but they are enjoyable. The shows were only 2 minutes long but very creative.

For years I thought the show was produced by Don Wade, because it mentions his name at the end of each broadcast. However after doing a Google search I found several other names associated with it, including Tom Rivers and Jim Hault.

I would really like to find out who actually produced this show and also get my hands on other episodes. If interested in the shows I have please contact me at Jeff.Logue@triakis.com

Jeff,

I'd made a tape of all the shows as well, as they were played on my local station in the 1980's. Unfortunately I lent the tape to a friend who said his mom found it and threw it away. A couple decades later i asked him about the tape and he said he'd played it for ywears until one day it broke. So much for honesty.

Anyway, if you have those WMA files on a server somewhere I'd love to download them.

Hi Ho Dilbert! Let's blow this joint!

Thanks,

Mik
